Brownstown, Indiana-July 9th, 2014: After a weekend away from competition during the Fourth of July holiday, Champions Tour, TS Performance Silver Series, and Ag Protect 1 competitors will test both driver and machine during a grueling five-day stretch starting July 10th, with much of the action squarely in The Land of Lincoln, Illinois.

The first event for the week starts tomorrow at Freeport, Illinois for the Midsummer Nationals at the Stephenson County Fair. Tomorrow nights' action (7/10) will include two Champions Tour classes with E3 Super Modified Tractors and iON Camera Unlimited Super Stocks on hand joined by Limited Pro Stock Tractors out of the Silver Series. Fridays' contest will see the Super Modified Tractors joined by Protect the Harvest Pro Stocks, Light Weight Super Stocks, and the Air Dog 3.0 Diesel Trucks from the Silver Series. The Badger State Tractor Pullers will also be in action for the two days with their sessions beginning at 1pm CDT each day; Champions Tour sessions will start at 7pm CDT.

The second stop on the "Illinois Swing" takes some competitors from the northern end of the state to the southern stop in Fairfield for the Southeast Summer Heat event in Fairfield on Saturday July 12th. The event, held at the New Wayne County Fair will see the Super Modified Tractors joined by Optima Batteries Super Modified Two Wheel Drive Trucks and Super Farm Tractors in Champions Tour action while the 3.0 Diesel Trucks make the trip down to Fairfield for their second stop of the weekend. Pulling starts at 7pm CDT.

The third stop in Illinois is the "America's Pull" held at the Marshall-Putnam Fair in Henry, Illinois. The pull has a legacy of high caliber competition and this year does not disappoint either. For 2014 the Mini-rod Tractor class joined the ranks of PPL classes under the TS Performance Silver Series umbrella and it is showcased at Henry along with six other classes: Speedco Pro Mod Four Wheel Drive Trucks, iON Camera Unlimited Super Stock Tractors, Protect the Harvest Pro Stock Tractors, Light Weight Super Stock Tractors, and two additional Silver Series classes, the Limited Pro Stock Tractor and ARP Super Stock Diesel Truck classes. The twin tracks of action come alive in Henry at 6pm CDT. For more information log on to the fair website at www.marshallputnamfair.org.
